Jupiter’s Year Long Transit
The Sign of Gemini:
Part Twinly Two
By: Brad Kronen
The Hardy Boys. Dear Abby & Ann Landers. The Weasley Twins. The Olsens.
These famous sets of twins, although fictitious and fabricated for entertainment purposes and/or franchise movable figurines, are precisely the role models needed to garner the most optimal gain and bountiful benefit as the planet Jupiter moves through the sign of Gemini from June 11th of 2012 to June 27th of 2013.
As mentioned in Part I, Jupiter is the biggest space ball in all the Solar System, and astrologically represents Luck, Opportunity, Faith, and Good Fortune, just to name a fortuitous few. Once a year (with exceptions, such as the mighty planet’s Grand Prix race through the sign of Aries in the first half of 2011 which clocked in at 1/2 the usual transit time of 6 months), the planet known as “The Great Benefic” will transition through space by moving through each of the subsequent signs of the Zodiac. We Earth residents can interpret the King of Planets’ changing of rulership robes as a switching of venues from which to directly experience Luck, Opportunity, and all the other gooeylicious Jupiterian influences already mentioned.
Certain sign transitions can be quite noticable, given the inherent differences between the sign Jupiter leaves and the sign the largest of heavenly bodies newly enters.
The King of Planets’ upcoming transition is no exception.
On June 11th, the most Gargantuan of Gas Balls leaves the earthy, material-based, slow and stodgy sign of Taurus and entreats upon the first of the Air signs, mentally mutable, motor-mouthed Gemini. Stepping back, wayyyyyy back, in the most big pictured of ways, Jupiter’s transition from Taurus to Gemini for the upcoming year can be interpreted as cosmic blessings and potential opportunity moving away from the tangible, monetary, and the material, and towards a less heavy atmosphere which emphasizes social interaction amongst any/all walks of life, multi-subjected conversation, and intellectual stimulation that is both varied and eclectic.
With the exception of the mythological Olsen Twins (who, get a loquacious load of this, someone recently tried to convince me that not only do the made-up mirrored siblings exist, but are actually living, breathing Geminis, as if!), the twinly teams previously mentioned are prime examples of the proper approach to be taken by we Earth Folk during The King of Planets’ year long trek through the sign of The Twins.
So that everyone is made aware, but most especially the astrological members of the band Air Supply, namely Libras, Aquarians, and the Air signed guests of honor, Geminis, the modus operendi of The Great Benefic is to place before each of our paths, people, things, events, etc. which hold potential benefit or opportunistic gain, but what must be doubly emphasized, these hand dropped Jupiterian deliveries are not part of our day to day world or daily regimen.
Some form of risk or investigative approach needs to be taken for the sunshine and lollipops that is Jupiter’s bounty to be activated.
Following the lead of those fictitiously famous twins, during Jupiter’s upcoming year long transit through the sign of Gemini, everyone, but most especially all Air signs, should be as mentally inquisitive as The Hardy Boys at the height of one of their gosh darn exciting mystery investigations, or should approach their world with the same impish sense of intellectual experimentation as Fred and George Weasley displayed right before being expelled from Hogwart’s School of Magic.
The same Nosey Ned is interrupting again, trying to convince me that Dear Abby and Ann Landers are not only real, but real time twins as well. When will these gullible people learn just because two advice spewing programs come from the same software, does not make them actual people, let alone siblings sharing identical strands of DNA? Jeez!
“One of the luckiest periods of your life, Gemini.” (Your life……Your life……..Your life…..)
Call me Capricorn Moon, but hearing demonstratrives being applied to one’s overall time on this plane of existence gives me the creeps.
I can’t help but picture the most ironically grim of Hitchcockian scenarios, where I’m 11 years old, and my bestest best buddy in the whole wide world, Jimmy Somethingorother, and his family are about to embark on their fully-loaded-to-the-hilt car excursion for the summer holidays. My perspective then strangely mutates into a Vaseline-around-the-edges, hazy slow-mo, as Jimmy dreamily waves from the back seat window while the chock full car drives slow-mo’d away, saying in the slowest of basso profundo record speed voices:
“This is going to be the best summer, ever!”
All the while knowing in retrospect, Jimmy, and everything else that loaded down the car, were decimated in a fiery blaze soon thereafter, or even better (in an eery, demonstrative kind of way), Jimmy and the entire clan of Somethingorothers were never seen or heard from again.
Macabre pre-pubescent perspectives aside, when The Great Benefic transits through our Sun sign, it truly is one of the luckiest, or said another way, one of the most optimally opportunistic times in our lives.
Provided, of course, we play by the Jupiterian rules of taking risk and actively investigating anything that is not part of our regular day to day lives.
Given the Gemini’s voracious mental curiosity is faster than the most hyperactive of 5 year olds after secretly slugging down a few cans of Mountain Dew, taking risk through active investigation should not be an issue of concern for those born under the first of the Air signs as The King of Planets tranists through their sign.
The dualisticly tricky part behind The Great Benefic’s bestowments which is both intriguingly fun and truly maddening is many times, the opportunistic person/event/thing Jupiter places before our paths will often appear like no big whoop or may blend in with the cosmic wallpaper. An active ingredient behind Jupiterian risk and investigation often involves the unveiling of the bland exterior to discover the benefic bounty which lies from beneath the surface, or deep within.
And my dualistic ones, for every attribute or good trait in the Universe, there is a foible or bad habit of equal proportions. You whirling dhervishes of mental curiosity may have the investigatory risk thing covered, but what to do if you Hurricanes of Mutable Motion power zoom up to something that doesn’t have a blinking neon sign over it announcing, “LUCK HERE.”, or wasn’t previously prepped by Martha Stewart, so that it overtly registers to the mind of the Gemini, “It’s a good thing.”?
Not only is not bothering to see what blows in the Gemini’s fast and furious wake an issue, but equally problematic is the Mercurial minds’ of the Zodiac susceptibility to distraction.
Whenever tot-sized Brad needed to get a booster or flu shot at the doctor’s office, my Gemini mother avoided any and all screaming resistance through the tactfully timed strategy of distracting her Gemini child.
At the exact moment when the doctor was ready to administer the needle while I was simultaneously clamoring away at full blood curdling screech, my mother would simply point in a different visual direction from the fastly approaching Bringer of Pain, exclaiming, “Look, Brad! Ladybug!”
I fell for that cheap trick every needle nailing time.
So my airy brothers and sisters, if the Gemini truly wants to make the most of “one of the luckiest times of their air signed life”, definitely keep doing what you Geminis do so well, but with the conscious effort of dropping things down a few warp speeds less than lightning fast usual, and most importantly, with some forced intakes of breath every 100 or so mental miles, in order to avoid glossing over, along with needle nailing every ounce of Jupiterian bounty. K? Super Sunshine & Lollipops Great!
As for the rest of you, Zodiacally Zip it! You’ll be getting your specialized Jupiter in Gemini instructions soon enough.
